During this ceremonial and alchemical plant diet we will fast and only drink an elixir made from Angelica. We will combine both shamanic and plant spirit healing practices, plus Taoist inner alchemy to connect deeply with the conscious intelligence of Angelica and help us cultivate a strong and balanced energy body to ground and embody the powerful life-forces of this beautiful plant. Just like the strong stem of Angelica through which she grounds the angelic energies, so we need a body that is able to receive and integrate her healing gifts to illuminate our life.
Taoist Alchemist, Barry Spendlove will teach us internal alchemical exercises to clear the energetic pathways for the embodiment of these celestial energies. This will be a powerful series of ancient Taoist practices that we can continue with after the retreat. We will stimulate and activate meridian flow, bring balance to the 5 elements and 3 types of energies within us (Earth, Spirit and Chi energies). We will learn how to improve our skeletal structure to stand solidly between earth and the divine.
The retreat also includes: transformational breathwork, shamanic plant spirit healing sessions and journeying, fire ceremony and a Sunday feast before you leave.
